Uniquely patterned and finished, the R2/SG2 steel core clad in stainless steel looks out of this world and the edge retention is exceptional.


Excellent sharpness right out of the box as you'd expect from Kurosaki and the R2 core steel retains an edge very well so this knife will perform when you need it.


Just look at it! It's stunning. 

Every blade is unique, the stainless cladding has a wonderful variety of hammer finished markings that resemble a collection of diamonds embedded along the cladding.


This is a classic Japanese knife with a half tang and lightweight octagonal walnut wa handle so it's typically nimble and comfortable in use. 


The stainless R2 steel core clad in stainless is both sharp and durable and edge retention will be excellent. 

Ease of care

The Senko is easy to look after, both core and cladding steel are stainless so our normal storage and care instructions apply but this is a knife that's going to perform and look great for many years.

Value for money

You're getting a lot of knife for your money. Kurosaki san has once again created something that marries performance, durability and a beautiful design that is recognisably his own and this is a knife you'll be reaching for time and again for many years.
